It's pitch black, pouring with rain, we've been driving for 9 hours, my fault - I left five pairs of shoes in an Inn on the other side of New England which we had to go back for - I'm also the one that suggested avoiding fancy hotels and trying the Inn experience and the last one was a nightmare. So it is with some fear and trepidation that we arrive at the Squire Tarbox . What a lovely welcome, giggly bubbly staff. Large ground floor bedroom full of bits and pieces and character and probably a few ghosts. Warm and cosy. We are shown the dining room (our first Inn with its own owner/chef/restaurant) pour a drink and sit in the guest lounge, a very atmospheric wooden building. Mario the owner appears to say hello, have a chat and tells us that his wife is away for a few days and he is missing her madly. Then its time for dinner which was absolutely and totally fantastic. You know that feeling, when you are a bit down in the dumps and your expectation level is zero and then something amazing happens? Next morning, not being in any rush to leave, we wandered around the grounds, said hello to the hens, walked through the trees in the rain and down to the waterside and peered through the mist. Eerie but beautiful. It's funny, it's not just about the accommodation or the views or the food, it's also about people and to be given a warm welcome on arrival, fabulous funny service at dinner and a few friendly words from the owner, does make all the difference. It's what is making me sit here at 9 at night, with a cold, and bothering to write and tell you that this place is special. With thanks from Mr and Mrs Kuhn !!
